Arianni froze as she saw the creature, nearly gagging at the stench coming from it. Dodging behind a wall, she slipped her daggers back into their sheaths and pulled her shortbow case from where it was strapped to her back, calling out to the men as she strung the bow and readied her arrows. "Attack from a distance if you can, use hit-and-run tactics if you have to get close! And, for the sake of all you hold sacred, don't stand still anywhere near that thing unless you want to die! You have someone to protect, damn it, and you can't do that if you're dead! Phyros, distract it if you can, but don't let it catch you!" She darted out from behind the wall as Phyros stooped at the creature with a harsh screech much like that of an eagle, raking his claws across the creature's face and speeding away as Arianni let an arrow fly, followed closely by a second, both aimed at the creature's eyes....

The lead of the men nodded, not going to argue about whom she was and why she was dishing out orders. Instead, he had the men switch effectively to their own crossbows.

Meanwhile, the beast leeched forward again, this time, diving for the men, whom scattered out of the way. It lay there for a few moments before flicking itself back up and released and uproar of eagle cries again. The arrows that were shot towards it buried inside it's skin, one had nestled itself inside its left eye, which caused it to holler again.

The dead of the village began to rise. Mindless beings they became. They gathered weapons and dashed toward the scattered men, prepared to kill.

Arianni cursed softly, letting loose another volley of arrows to blind the creature fully, issuing a sharp, piercing whistle. "Watch out! Either that thing or whoever brought it here is raising the dead villagers!" She flung herself to the side as one of the dead villagers attacked her, hooking her bow across her back and drawing her daggers to defend herself...

The first blast that had haltered from the sky tensed down upon the large beast in the oasis. The second crumbled at the villager that had attacked the lass. His body vanquished into dust as the lights conquered him. The men, on the other hand, began to cut down on the villagers, permanently ending their existence with the blow to the chest -- their mana pool. Granted they were skilled, and they certainly knew how to tackle the undead.

Another blast radiated from the sky, a third blast of heated light, crackled and scorned upon the beast once more, his roars of pain screeching the area. What were these blasts? These callings of light rays?

A figure from the distant sky had flown downward and grabbed hold of the lass's arm tightly. She stood beside her now revealing herself as the High Priestess... but with wings?

Arianni's eyes widened as she saw the Priestess' wings, gasping softly in awe. "Oh, wow.... You're like an angel..." She cried out suddenly in pain, dagger falling from suddenly useless fingers at the same time her wyvernling screeched, struggling and failing to stay airborne, blood streaming from his wing and side. Phyros plummeted to the ground, shapeshifting at the last second into a feline form and twisting to land on his feet, screeching again as he ran on three legs towards Arianni and the Priestess.

Her wings were flutters of light, gifted to her by the goddess herself, she told. Granted, they shined with the sun rays and grew bigger with each flap.

When the girl startled with pain, the high priestess tried to move quickly to catch her, but Barny had been quicker and he wrapped his arms around the stumbling girl. Vaidhurya took to her side. "Are you alright?" She asked, worried now.

Arianni nodded weakly, panting a little from the pain. "It's not me... It's Phyros... We're connected, if one of us is hurt, the other feels it too... I'm sorry I keep being a burden on you, Priestess..."" She gasped softly as Phyros half-ran, half-limped to them in his feline form, the little creature losing his hold on the form and shifting back at their feet.

The young priestess lifted Phyros into her arms, gently massaging his back, and easily handing him over to Barny's free hand. "No, you're fine." Vaidhurya responded. "Barnabas, watch them. I have to find it's core." He nodded and as the priestess took flight toward the massive beast. Again, he screeched and sent water from the oasis flinging in her direction. Vaidhurya tried her best to dodge the attacks, knowing full well that if her wings got wet, she could not fly.

Again, a massive light beam shot from her trident and eventually blinded the creature for a few moments. She flew around his body and when his "core" was spotted, she easily threw the trident in that direction, seizing control of the beast and watching him slowly decay.

Arianni watched the Priestess fly off, in awe of her. "Be safe...." Turning to Barnabas and Phyros, she tore a strip from the hem of her blouse to use as bandaging. "Could you help hold his wing steady while I bandage him up? I've got to stop the bleeding before we both end up passing out on you..." Phyros let out a soft, churring whimper, trying to hide his head under his good wing.

Barny smiled lightly, nodding and helping the girl recover along with her dragon friend, holding Phyros gently, yet securely while the other tended to him. The remaining four men regrouped around the duo and watched in awe as the priestess flew back. She hid her wings now, watching them fade to dust and landed properly before everyone else.

Arianni quickly bound Phyros' wounds before taking him carefully into her arms and cradling him close to comfort him, smiling gratefully at Barny. "Thank you..." She turned just as the Priestess landed, her smile turning shy. "You're really amazing, Priestess..." she stumbled a little before catching herself, forcing herself to stay on her feet, not wanting to look like a weakling even though she felt like one. "I'm sorry I couldn't be of more help during the fight..."

"No," She murmured slightly, a tensed grin wiping her lips, "I'm just a human. There's nothing special about me." And she grabbed the girl's arm gently to steady her. "Barny, ready the horses." Vaidhurya commanded but kept her gaze on the girl and her companion. "We have guests tonight."

Arianni smiled up at the Priestess, shaking her head slightly. "Being human doesn't mean you can't be amazing... It doesn't have anything to do with it...What makes you amazing is how brave and kind you are..." Half-out of it from Phyros' pain and sheer exhaustion, she reached up to lightly tap the Priestess' nose, giggling. "Who you are makes you amazing, not what you are... You're pretty, too....." She passed out suddenly, her legs giving out from under her.

((Sorry, had to do it XD my silly-side demanded that I do something goofy, hope you don't mind XD))

She smiled shortly before catching the girl's frail and weak body. Barny had lifted her up in his arms with her little companion on her torso. They walked back to their horses and carriages and loaded the girl into the back. From there, they took off to a nearby village. The priestess tended to Arianni's wounds.

Arianni stayed unconscious throughout the trip, only her shallow breathing and Phyros's occasional whimpers showing that the pair were still alive. In repose she looked even younger, a strange aura, almost Fey but not quite, seeming to surround her.

((sorry it's so short, not sure what else to put XD))
